The House - January 12, 2013
This week on The House, Evan Solomon dissects the outcome of the meeting between First Nations leaders and the federal government. First, the National Chief of the Assembly of First Nations Shawn Atleo discusses what was accomplished at Friday's gathering, then we get the government's view with Greg Rickford, the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development. Evan also speaks with Derek Nepinak, Grand Chief of the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs to find out why he chose to boycott the meeting. Then, we look at the future of the Idle No More movement with spokesperson Pam Palmater. Then, the CBC's Chris Hall and Terry Milewski help us put all sides in perspective and explain what it all means politically.
